I do sometimes wonder what I could have accomplished in my life had I not chosen to do little.

You've done 423,490,824,720,000,000,000 calculations to answer possibly the most important unanswered scientific question there is, and every second you do 238,280,000,000 more.

I'd say that was a lot.

Mark has now not posted in almost three weeks, and his computers have not contacted the servers in two weeks. He did significantly reduce his production here, but it isn't like him to disappear completely without notice. No response to e-mail, PM and even a couple of phone calls with messages left.

Has anyone had any contact from him since Sept. 8th when he last posted here? Hoping he is OK. Forgive me if my concern seems excessive (hoping he is just on vacation or hiatus or something) but the last person who vanished like this was Gordon. :^(

Now, you've got me a little worried. Yes, his computers last 'contacted' the project, mid-morning or so, on the 15th of this month. Your concern, Mr. Kevvy, is as justified as mine now is.

It appears that Mark is OK and just taking time off from here for personal reasons. I can't elaborate as I am not completely sure, but as he appears to have done so voluntarily I won't pursue it further as I don't want to intrude on his privacy.

I hope that he is able to return soon, and will of course update if I get any definitive information.

Edit: re: "Please also check WoW, Message board." Someone from our team did this earlier (I would have no idea how) but there was no update there from him either.

Glad to hear the Kittyman is alive and kicking.
Just let him know that lots of folks are/were concerned for his well being.

I certainly will do that if I actually contact him, but I unfortunately still have yet to do so. What I garnered was from other sources...

Thanks for checking up on him Kevv.
